    Fishman Catch bait???

    First time I've iced fished in the Cincinnati area, lived down here for 4 years and this is the first time I've saw good ice and had free time to get on it! Fished a 2 acre pond, that had 5-6"'s of good crystal clear ice on it. Only managed to catch 3 fish, but had fun doing it.

    Brought home a nice largemouth, a dinky largemouth (owner of the pond doesn't want any largemouths released basically) and a decent gill.


    Nice chunky winter time bass:


    Appologize in advange if the pictures showed up HUMONGOUS, the old lady had the resolution cranked on the camera, didn't realize it, and didn't feel like resizing them:D

    Ah- I understand now. Still nice to be out. I'll be on Buckeye tomorrow early and for most of the day. Lets hope they decide to bite tomorrow.

    Tall cool one strictly flyfishing

    Been out ice fishing probably 5-6 times, panfish etc,jigging for saugeyes. Boring,boring,boring! NO wading,you sit in one spot(heck,you SIT?!?!?!),no scenery,esp if you're in a shanty. No thanks,not for me....feels like a prison sentence sitting there staring at that lil hole,I'll stick to warmwater outlets and steelhead in the winter,TC1

    Beats sitting in the house in my opinion. I took the dogs out today and ran them on the ice, was halarious watching them slide all over the place chasing frisbees!
  8. good to hear there is some good ice back home. i'll take bucket sitting anyday over the house!
